Ah yes I think I see it! Thanks. I’m not free this Saturday but I’ll try for future ones! Do you get a good turn out?

I find it hard to practice with family as their welsh is, obviously, a lot more advanced and very quick! Hard for them to know what welsh I do / don’t know!


#322

Yes, but a fantastic source of practice once you get going!..and that can be a tricky thing for many - getting speaking time under your belt - so that should catapult you forwards - in time.

It is usually double figures. I guess there are about 20 people if everyone was there at the same time (which the aren’t). Usually about 10 - more or less.

Hi

Stefi suggested I try and come along if possible, I don’t live in Leeds though is that ok? I’ve been learning since March with SSiW on level 1 challenge 20 so still got lots more to learn! I find it hard to get to many weekly chats with SSiW during week because of work so sat lunchtime would be great for me if poss , thanks, Huw

Thanks very much everyone I really enjoyed it, thanks for helping me out lots and putting up with me also :+1:t2::grinning:


#333

Funny I’ve also been thinking that since I’ve started learning welsh, even though I’ve always lived in Wales I now start seeing the meaning of all the welsh names and find I’m automatically pronouncing them slightly differently which my wife finds weird😆!


#334

@huw-evans-2

You did really well - you rolled your sleeves up, got stuck in and your Welsh seemed Great! :+1: :sunny: :sparkles:
